"My eyes are wide open" - Kanye West quits politics!

31 October 2018
'Ye sent waves of relief across the streets of social media when he announced a departure from politics

Kanye West has vowed to ditch his controversial political involvement and shun it for a return to being a 'creative'.

The Hip Hop mogul took to Twitter to assure fans that he would no longer be pursuing any further political stunts. "My eyes are now wide open", wrote the Scoopy Doo Poop rapper and producer, who recently came under fire for endorsing POTUS Donald Trump.

"I’ve been used to spread messages I don’t believe in. I am distancing myself from politics and completely focusing on being creative !!!" 

2019 marked some high triumphs and low fails for the 41-year-old Chicago native, who spent the whole year churning out masterly albums and defending inflammatory political statements. That will no longer be happening though, as Ye pulls out of his political associations to focus on his strengths - making good music.
